dimon is getting public praise from billionaire warren buffett. this week on charlie rose, mr. buffett said he thinks mr. dimon could be the "best person for the job" after treasury secretary timothy geithner steps down. mr. buffett notes that dimon could deftly handle another financial crisis, even though jp morgan was forced to take a government bailout during the financial crisis and dimon came under question earlier this year, when the bank lost 6 billion dollars in a trading blunder. cyber monday could almost be re- named "mobile monday." a growing number of consumers used their smartphones and tablets to shop on cyber monday this year. it contributed to an overall bump in sales of 30% from last year. comscore is estimating that sales will reach a whopping 1.5 billion dollars. amazon's kindle fire was the day's most searched-for gift on the web. others that were high in demand were uggs, ipads, the ipod touch, legos, and the wii. some consumers did not get what they bargained for this cyber monday. 132 websites in the u.s. and europe were shut down after allegedly selling counterf
, raising the marginal tax rate on the top end is spur purely a symbolic t. and the reason warren buffett is able to say, well, my secretary is taxed at a higher rate than i am is not because of that rate, it's because of the capital gains rate at 15%. >> we need to ask him about that, too. and i'm sure he would agree capital gains rates, which were about 28% under bill clinton when we had the roaring '90s, are at 15% right now. i've got to say, this is one of those areas where, when i was in congress, i wanted the capital gains rate to go down, thought it was too high at 28%. it's at 15% now. if you want to look at income disparity, you know, in part, the 15% capital gains tax rate and carried interest allows the super wealthy to get by paying a hell of a lot less than middle-class americans. >> if you're for fairness, that's where the fairness is. that's why the rich don't pay as much tax as the others. the marginal tax rate is marginal. if you raise it a couple of percentage points, it doesn't change much. if you raise that capital gains rate, that's where the big money is made. >> he

over and over. >> you saw warren buffett this morning. >> some interesting points. he had an alternative minimum tax he had been talking about for the really wealthy. >> 30% or something. >> anybody from 1 to $10 million. also talked a little bit about raising the -- >> same thing he's been saying all along. >> he added that when it comes to who should be paying the higher taxes, he wants the threshold to be $500,000. >> and you see steven rattner on on talking about capital gains, deductions and things you've talked about a lot. >> time for the global markets report. ross westgate totally still confuse aed about thanksgiving and pilgrims. what was all the hoopla about? you celebrate boxing or something, don't you? like we lost a great boxer. is that what you celebrate? what is boxing day? >> boxing day, the day of a christmas. >> you wrap all your presents in boxes? >> i think it's something to do with all the presents. i'm not quite sure. >> yeah, put them in boxes. >> maybe. >> so you ignored our thanksgiving. but feeling okay again? >> yeah. you know, it's okay. it's a

are the affluent, aren't going to spend this year. that's bad. >> talk about warren buffett, always willing to stir the pot. op-ed in the "new york times" this morning, he says that the rich pay a lower tax rate on their incomes than the middle class does. it's a point he's made before. as robert frank points out, what mr. buffett does not mention is that, on average, very few americans actually pay their official tax rate. >> that's right. we're going to get into this a lot more on "street signs." people can read it on cnbc.com today. the other important point to make on this, it is just not a lot of money and it is not a lot of people. it is sort of a minor problem in the grand scheme of the economy. it is really about .1% of the taxpayers and it's maybe $5 billion to $10 billion a year. relative to a $1 trillion deficit -- not saying it's nothing, but it's just such a tiny amount -- >> people at his income level are paying that. >> i have to say, if we're going to have a big tax debate, let's have one that really matters, now about this warren buffett rule which won't raise enough revenue to mak
: the president's tax plans got some support from legendary investor warren buffett today. writing in the new york times, buffett says higher taxes won't lead the wealthy to go on strike and give up promising investment opportunities. darren gersh, "n.b.r.," washington. >> tom: talk of the fiscal cliff threat didn't seem to hurt cyber monday, the biggest online shopping day of the year. americans are expected to spend $1.5 billion online today according to research firm comscore. that's up 20% from last year, as retailers pull out all the stops to get shoppers to click on their websites. erika miller has more. >> reporter: many americans were hard at work today. but others were hardly working-- using high speed office computers to scour the internet for bargains. others browsed at retail stores, but used mobile phones and tablets to make their purchases online. >> but internet shopping is more than just price comparison this year. it's about going shopping with friends and family even when they're not there. >> it makes them feel better about shopping when they are accessing social media. and its
's a shift. warren buffett says raise tax rates on incomes over a half million dollars, that's a shift. but the president and democrats are not moving and they still say raise tax rates on the rich. on-line shopping, a very big winner and very big for retailers. 13% better than last year overall. today, on-line sales may run close to 2 billion dollars. will it last through the holidays? we've got another north african economy in absolute chaos. egypt torn by rioting after morsi takes dictatorial powers. they really need our money now. watch out, everybody, "varney & company" is about to begin. get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ] move to the country, and live a long, happy life together where they almost never fight about money. [ dog barks ] because right after they get married, they'll find some retirement peopl who are paid on sary, not commission. they'll get straightforward guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> as we said, call it a cave. call it a shift. call
secretary? >> who? >> warren buffett was interviewed on charlie rose and asked -- remember we asked him and he was erskine bowles. on charlie rose, he said the perfect person would be jamie dimon. >> wish i would have heard that before he came on. >> jamie's not going to do that, is he? >> i don't think james pie will that. i still think in this environment, i don't think the president is ready to take on -- >> they don't see eye to eye on a lot of things. he wouldn't even talk about how he really feels. >> last january he was on with you you from davos and still a democrat barely was his wording on it. but he'd also like to have someone who understands the markets. >> get around all the free market stuff, completely abolish free markets? >> if europe become as big issue, if something rises up with the bond markets -- >> that was the point warren buffett made. he said if you want someone who understands the markets and the turmoil that we'll be in. and also they even talked about the london whale and what that meant. >> probably won't be a bankster this time. we had a guy who ran a meta
on that point. do the markets care when you see the ceos and some of the wealthier people, including warren buffett today in the "times" saying, look, we have got to raise revenues by raising some taxes on wealthy individuals. we saw that from both buffet and radner, very prom negligent well-known financiers but ultimately endorsing what sounds like the obama position. do the markets look to those steps the way we do in politics and say this is more likely to get done or does it not work that way? >> look, the market is hanging on every single development in these negotiations. a couple of days ago leaders came out of the white house and said they had a pretty conciliatory meeting and everything seemed hunky dory at least in that one meeting and the market boomed. people are watching and waiting to see what's happened here. you've got a split on wall street. there are those folks who don't want to see tax increases no matter what under any circumstances ever. and then you have other folks like lloyd blankfein who said they don't mind tax increases on the wealthy as long as it helps us to ge
officials will behave like spoiled children, and warren buffett took the gop to school today, quote, let's forget about the rich and ultra rich going on strike and stuffing their ample funds under their mattresses if, gasp, capital gains rates and ordinary income rates are increased. the ultra rich, including me, says mr. buffett, will forever pursue investment opportunities. so he's calling for a minimum tax on millionaires and billionaires. will republicans listen? >> well, it's a sensible way. if we're going to have a deal, we will have to see some kind of compromise. a minimum tax on people making over $1 million a year can generate a half it trillion in a ten-year scale. if you include deductions you don't necessarily have to go to 39%. you can go to 37% if you are looking for compromise. but i think there's a bigger issue here as well, and that is the idea this is a slightly critical towards the democrats, the biggest issue that this country faces right now is getting us back to 4% economic growth, 3% or 4% economic growth and seeing wages increase right now. this whole idea that d
companies that will start raining cash. and if you were going to analyze them warren buffett style would be quite attractive. what are they and what are the key characteristics? >> we had a report out called raining cash and still raining cash over the last couple of years and we published a new report just a couple of weeks ago called macao's checklist. we're basically saying the reason why you should be owning these stocks going forward is because of the dividend yield. these stocks are generated a huge a free cash flow over the last couple years and now they're looking to pay quite high dividends of about 10%. so we think that's a strong reason to own the is to bes going forward. so it's hard to think about macao as a safe place to be, but as we've highlighted in the report and using buffett as a proxy, it takes a lot of the boxes. so the companies have strong balance sheets. they're basically net cash now. they have high 33% and also generating huge free cash throw. and if you think about the six companies in hong kong, you have three that pay down at that level. so we believe it's v
on "squawk" this morning. a number of gop lawmakers say they will reject the no-tax pledge. warren buffett taking a jab at norquist this morning in an op-ed in the "times." he says let's forget about the rich and ultrarich going on strike and stuffing ample funds under their mattresses if capital gains are increased. ultrarich will forever pursue investment opportunities. >> i thought that was right. i thought it was right. we always hear job creators. i started a lot of businesses. they never make any money at the beginning. i don't want -- a great line there. i don't want to be so successful i have to pay a lot of taxes. that's stupid. that's something from someone who never ran a business. the late george mcgovern where he discovered how hard it was to be a businessman, you don't create a job. you create a job for tremendous success but you accept losses at the beginning. you never take an investment and say i don't want to do that because i'm afraid i'll have to pay taxes. you just don't. >> regulation sort of dealing with a lot of red tape which we also hear about as an impediment. >>
already shrunk by nearly a fifth? >>> and warren buffett on tv this morning saying he wouldn't sell a single share of stock even if he was guaranteed the u.s. goes off the fiscal cliff. just wait until you hear who he thinks should be the treasury secretary. >> we'll begin of course with the deal of the day. conagra foods has agreed to acquire ralcorp for $5 billion. $90 a share in cash. 28% premium to the closing price on monday. kayla tausche reported on potential for a deal between the two companies back in 2011. it creates the largest private label food company in north america. this is a big deal. >> yes, it is. it's big in size in terms of what we've seen in this market. look how excited he is. and they finally got it done. it's been one as you pointed out that was around in 2011. they couldn't get it done. that is conagra. they walked away. ralcorp stock price fell dramatically. they split the post cereal division from ralcorp. the two trade separately. so you did have a company here that perhaps became a little more -- i wouldn't say vulnerable. not as if they were committed
are we today? you get different estimates. warren buffett said 15.5% yesterday is coming in as revenue. i have heard lower figures. that is the reality of what has happened. we have seen a decline in tax revenue and an increase in spending for a variety of reasons. if we are serious about deficit reduction, we have got to move back the golden 19.6%. let's talk for a minute about what has happened. the chairman of the appropriation committee. let's take a look at where the art today compared to where we were in fiscal year 2001 when the federal government ran a $128 billion surplus. compared to the 2001 figure, we are spending less on non- security concessionary spending than we were. the growth in spending has not been in the non-defense discretionary. the cost of security programs in that same time period has gone up 60%. the cost of mandatory programs is up 30%. i want to call your attention to one aspect progressives need to remind people. of the $1.50 trillion already in spending cuts, $900 billion comes from spending. we have given far more than when it comes to defense side. let's t
livestock and dairy markets. this is a stock with renewed focus because it is warren buffett's -- one of his latest additions. small stake but he did add. >> $143 million. "the journal" takes a crack at why you would want it. secular advances in need for global grain output, emerging markets and so ford. along his burlington northern play. he adds to the position down the road. it's only a 1% stake right now. >> where are we in terms of -- i know the company put outlook looking 5% increase for full year 2013 in equipment sales, 10% for the first quarter and $3.2 billion. how does that figure -- >> in line with what wall street was expecting. revenue guidance, growth guidance, that was a little stronger than was expected. this stock has had a monster run since its last earning report back in august. it's up 18% since the end of september. an outperformer relative to the broader market. the question is, is this a pullback, not only because the eps missed but also because they had a big run of late. . are people simply taking profits here? >> we don't talk a lot before greece because there's a
, taxes, things that distort economic activity. >> warren buffett wrote an interesting op-ed. he is a supporter of the president but said he does not favor raising rates on people making more than $250,000 but said he would support it for people making $500,000. is there an income level where you support or at least not oppose vehemently the idea of racing rates? >> again, you know, i don't think that's a constructive direction to go in. we -- you know, we could just keep adding ever more brackets, and ever more burdens on people who are productive or have a couple of good years in their business. i think all of that discourages economic growth and discourages risk taking and entrepreneurship. so i'm in favor of moving in the direction of a flatter tax system. of fewer brackets, lower rates, simplicity where we get rid of all the distortions that happen in the tax code, rather than speculating about how many different new brackets we should create. >> i want to get to benghazi. on taxes you talk about closing loopholes and reducing destructions. grover norquist says that would vi
